Uluwatu Temple and Kecak Dance

Experience an incredible combination of culture and beautiful landscape on this tour to the Uluwatu Temple, which sits on a cliff 230 feet (70 m) above the Indian Ocean. You’ll get to watch a Kecak dance performance, followed by a seafood barbecue on the beach. The dance takes place in the warm haze of the setting sun.

In the later afternoon, when you first arrive at the temple, you’ll be greeted by the temple’s main emissaries — the monkeys that call these temple grounds home. Your guide will tell you a bit about the temple's history as you stroll the grounds. They'll also bring you to some of the best views from the cliffs of the Bukit Peninsula, which is one of the most memorable views in Indonesia.

Male dancers perform the Kecak dance, which replicates the battle described in the Sanskrit scripture called the Ramayana. This dance style based on Sanghyang, a genre of sacred dances that are never performed outside of religious rituals, so the Kecak developed during the 1930s as a way to introduce visitors to Balinese dance. This dance takes place as the sun sets, making the sight even more breathtaking.

Please note: Modest dress is required.
